Man gets six months for massive littering near Telluride
The Denver Post
DENVER — A western Colorado man was sentenced this week to six months in federal prison this for leaving about 8,500 pounds of debris from an encampment near Telluride over more than a year.
Federal prosecutors say Benjamin Yoho, 41, dumped the debris between October 2014 and April in the Uncompahgre National Forest near the Jud Wiebe Trail.
Authorities say he built a structure in the forest where he lived.
A string of American tourist deaths at a hotel in the Dominican Republic has flung a Colorado couple into the center of attention a year after the two became ill while staying at the hotel.
